Smartdrinx is the only in-room system in the world that can replace
the loss making minibar / fridge with a no-hassle, profit centre and
marketing platform in every hotel room, suite, chalet, or apartment.
This captive audience creates opportunities for brand positioning,
additional marketing and sales opportunities.
With a global B2B potential of 17+ million hotel
rooms, total estimated available market of 8 million hotel rooms and
a serviceable obtainable market of 1 million hotel rooms, our growth
potential is truly global.
The signing of a $1Bn Sales & Distribution Contract in the
Gulf Region will see 150,000 units fast tracked into hotel rooms,
luxury suites and apartments, over the next 4 years.
Our unique system and patent IP crucially locks out competition.
Hoteliers in the gulf region are particularly seeking out the latest
state-of-the-art technology to enhance their guest's in-room experience,
and SmartDrinx ticks every box!
The value proposition demonstrates that each unit creates additional
revenue of $3,000 per room per year. For a 250 room hotel this
is $3.7m added to the bottom line over 5 years.
